I was at Keesler from June 76 till Feb 77. I was Baby Huey the time I was there. We made front page below the fold of the Keesler news.
That's me with the base. They mixed up the names.
My daughter was born while I was in the Corps. When I had my rope inspection, the head of the STYX (can't remember her name) let my snuck my wife in the dormes and let her stay with her during time I was preparing for the exam. Since I lived off base, they had to clear out a dorm room for me to clean.
Since my wife was pregnant during my inspection, the girls snuck her in to stay in the dorm that week-end. My daughter was born wile I was there. She played bass in her high school band.
I remember one parade in particular. We were being hosted by the American Legion. It was a rather long parade. About half way thru, an elderly lady, maybe in her 70's, drunker than a skunk, marched beside of us for at least 1/4 mile or so. All the time smoking a pipe. It was all we could do to keep from losing it. Of course after the parade, the American Legion opened up the bar, and most of us were drunk, too.
